DIY: Cotton Candy Party Favors - Free Printables


The photo above makes me feel nostalgic for my youth. Some of my happiest childhood memories are visiting my grandparents in Myrtle Beach and eating cotton candy on the pier. No matter how old I get, cotton candy memories always make me smile.

If you’re looking for a unique, yet fun wedding favor this next tutorial is for you….






  • Cotton Candy - My favorite source is Spinn Candy
  • Translucent Paper with white polka dots for the envelopes.
  • White printable sticker paper or white card for labels
  • Double sided tape or glue.
  • Scalpel or Scissors.
  • Color Printer.
  • Rounded corner punch - for envelopes
  • Small clear plastic sealable bags- these will need to fit inside the translucent bag. (If they are too long they can always be folded back slightly).
  • Label design - Download below.
  • Envelope template- DOWNLOAD HERE

Label Downloads


Aqua Label | Download


Pink Label | Download


Green Label | Download


Print out your envelope design onto translucent, white polka dot paper and using the scalpel, cut out, score along fold lines (indicated by dotted lines) and construct your envelope. I’ve used double sided tape on the side tabs to stick the envelope together. Use the rounded corner punch on the corners of the lid.

Put your cotton candy into a sealable bag and make sure it is sealed thoroughly. Slip this bag into your translucent envelope.

Print our your labels and cut out with scalpel.  For the rounded semi-circle edge, I found that cutting carefully and slowly with a scissors produced quite an accurate cut and I didn’t need anything more sophisticated than that.

If you are using white card, put a strip of double sided tape along the length of the back of your label and stick onto the front of the bag. (View photos for positioning).

*** Special Thank You …

DIY: Candy Bags {Free Printable}


I’ve been at a few weddings where buffets are used for dessert. It has become  quite popular, and for good reason. It saves you a bit of money and keeps the guests happy as there’s a lot to choose from and a great variety.

For today’s DIY we have some handy labels you can print on bags to use at your dessert table, be it for a wedding, kitchen tea, or birthday party . They can either be used while serving dessert, or as little doggy bags (there’s always plenty left afterwards – don’t want it to go to waste).



Instructions for Candy Bags:

Believe it or not, but household (single feed) printers are the best for printing on paper bags. Bigger printers will most definitely get paper jams and create lots of frustration!

Here are some pointers to keep in mind:

1) Change your page size to A5 (or whatever is closest to your paper bags size), and remember to select “fit to page”.

2) Make sure you set the bag up properly in the feed tray of your printer with any loose flaps facing down, away from the side you want printed.

3) Don’t let the design go to close to the outer sides of the bag.
